The Road to Working With Facilitators and the Challenges

There are several factors which have helped “Healthy Neighborhoods Initiative” to successfully conduct the “Improving Bike Safety in Maplewood Project”.  Careful planning, attention to detail and effective communication to make a project succeed are factors which allow us to work in collaboration with local businesses, public libraries, South Mountain YMCA and Maplewood police Department, Green Team, Freewalkers to continue to move forward, meet deadlines and staying organized.

Currently the challenge we are focusing our energy on is keeping the project scope clear and taking a small step a fresh look at the overall project, reviewing how things have gone so far, and how we can improve future project goals based on what has already changed along the way.

Communicating openly and encouraging feedback at every step to create greater engagement among all of our participants has been extremely helpful through these challenges.
